[8]And Hakkoz begat Anub, and Zobebah, and the families of Aharhel the son of Harum. [9]And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. [10]And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my border, and that thy hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it be not to my sorrow! And God granted him that which he requested. [11]And Chelub the brother of Shuhah begat Mehir, who was the father of Eshton.

[21]The sons of Shelah the son of Judah: Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of them that wrought fine linen, of the house of Ashbea; [22]and Jokim, and the men of Cozeba, and Joash, and Saraph, who had dominion in Moab, and Jashubilehem. And the records are ancient. [23]These were the potters, and the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah: there they dwelt with the king for his work.

[24]The sons of Simeon: Nemuel, and Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, Shaul; [25]Shallum his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. [26]And the sons of Mishma: Hammuel his son, Zaccur his son, Shimei his son. [27]And Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters; but his brethren had not many children, neither did all their family multiply like to the children of Judah. [28] And they dwelt at Beer-sheba, and Moladah, and Hazarshual, [29]and at Bilhah, and at Ezem, and at Tolad, [30]and at Bethuel, and at Hormah, and at Ziklag, [31]and at Beth-marcaboth, and Hazar-susim, and at Beth-biri, and at Shaaraim. These were their cities unto the reign of David. [32]And their villages were Etam, and Ain, Rimmon, and Tochen, and Ashan, five cities; [33]and all their villages that were round about the same cities, unto Baal. These were their habitations, and they have their genealogy.

[39]And they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. [40]And they found fat pasture and good, and the land was wide, and quiet, and peaceable; for they that dwelt there aforetime were of Ham. [41]And these written by name came in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and smote their tents, and the Meunim that were found there, and destroyed them utterly unto this day, and dwelt in their stead; because there was pasture there for their flocks. [42]And some of them, even of the sons of Simeon, five hundred men, went to mount Seir, having for their captains Pelatiah, and Neariah, and Rephaiah, and Uzziel, the sons of Ishi. [43]And they smote the remnant of the Amalekites that escaped, and have dwelt there unto this day.

Chapter 5

[1]And the sons of Reuben the first-born of Israel (for he was the first-born; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father's couch, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel; and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. [2]For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the prince; but the birthright was Joseph's:) [3]the sons of Reuben the first-born of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. [4]The sons of Joel: Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son, [5]Micah his son, Reaiah his son, Baal his son, [6]Beerah his son, whom Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria carried away captive: he was prince of the Reubenites. [7]And his brethren by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned: the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah, [8]and Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who dwelt in Aroer, even unto Nebo and Baal-meon: [9]and eastward he dwelt even unto the entrance of the wilderness from the river Euphrates, because their cattle were multiplied in the land of Gilead. [10]And in the days of Saul, they made war with the Hagrites, who fell by their hand; and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the [land] east of Gilead.

[11]And the sons of Gad dwelt over against them, in the land of Bashan unto Salecah: [12]Joel the chief, and Shapham the second, and Janai, and Shaphat in Bashan. [13]And their brethren of their fathers' houses: Michael, and Meshullam, and Sheba, and Jorai, and Jacan, and Zia, and Eber, seven. [14] These were the sons of Abihail, the son of Huri, the son of Jaroah, the son of Gilead, the son of Michael, the son of Jeshishai, the son of Jahdo, the son of Buz; [15]Ahi the son of Abdiel, the son of Guni, chief of their fathers' houses. [16]And they dwelt in Gilead in Bashan, and in its towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, as far as their borders. [17] All these were reckoned by genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel.

[18]The sons of Reuben, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, of valiant men, men able to bear buckler and sword, and to shoot with bow, and skilful in war, were forty and four thousand seven hundred and threescore, that were able to go forth to war. [19]And they made war with the Hagrites, with Jetur, and Naphish, and Nodab. [20]And they were helped against them, and the Hagrites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them; for they cried to God in the battle, and he was entreated of them, because they put their trust in him. [21]And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep two hundred and fifty thousand, and of asses two thousand, and of men a hundred thousand. [22]For there fell many slain, because the war was of God. And they dwelt in their stead until the captivity.

[23]And the children of the half-tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baal-hermon and Senir and mount Hermon. [24]And these were the heads of their fathers' houses: even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valor, famous men, heads of their fathers' houses. [25]And they trespassed against the God of their fathers, and played the harlot after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God destroyed before them. [26]And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river of Gozan, unto this day.

[31]And these are they whom David set over the service of song in the house of Jehovah, after that the ark had rest. [32]And they ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of Jehovah in Jerusalem: and they waited on their office according to their order. [33]And these are they that waited, and their sons. Of the sons of the Kohathites: Heman the singer, the son of Joel, the son of Samuel, [34]the son of Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Eliel, the son of Toah, [35]the son of Zuph, the son of Elkanah, the son of Mahath, the son of Amasai, [36]the son of Elkanah, the son of Joel, the son of Azariah, the son of Zephaniah, [37]the son of Tahath, the son of Assir, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, [38]the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, the son of Israel.

[48]And their brethren the Levites were appointed for all the service of the tabernacle of the house of God.

[49]But Aaron and his sons offered upon the altar of burnt-offering, and upon the altar of incense, for all the work of the most holy place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded.
